book description
With advancements in the electronic world almost occurring on a day-to-day basis and increased availability of products to the public, it is not surprising to see a staggering increase in the generation of electronic wastes over the past decade. This book explores the management, types and challenges related to e-waste. Topics discussed include the processing of plastic materials from e-waste; challenges and opportunities of e-waste management in developing countries; an e-waste quantification study of the People's Republic of China; e-waste environmental contamination and public health effects; and recovery of valuable metals from flat panel displays of spent liquid crystal and plasma televisions. © 2012 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
